I have 1 trios doc and 5-6 itero docs. only cause of invisalign, with itero you can't do half the scanning features as trios. Makes designing much easier. My one itero doc sends me pre op model and says match the shape and size. WTF, my trios doc simply does a pre op scan and it is incorporated in the file, what more can you ask for. My friend at 3shape said they had to do like 600 scans of a model before they got approved by itero, Do one scan send it in, then wait for approval, do the second scan of the same model and wait, etc......................... this way Invisalign can test the accuracy of the scanner. BS your just delaying 3shape so itero can make millions more on scanner sales. Now the playing field is level!This is huge for me.
Itero has been pounding the pavement here.
I sort of look at this as a positive thing. Invisalign is discriminant about cross arch accuracy. This leads me to believe that 3shape has improved their scanning algorithms enough for consistency in full arch scanning. 600 scans of the same model does seem excessive though.My friend at 3shape said they had to do like 600 scans of a model before they got approved by itero,
When I worked at the other lab they treated me as their KOL for some testing. And I recently received a few more scans. I think they have good technology, but they again suffer from typical tech companies - it needs both integration, UI friendliness and ability.
